WASHINGTON (BNS): U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command (TACOM LCMC) has awarded the Oshkosh Corporation $640 million contract for the procurement of 1,460 MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV).

According to a news release by the Oshkosh Corporation, M-ATV is the newest MRAP model specifically designed to operate on the harsh mountainous terrain and unimproved roads.

"The US Armed Forces have Oshkosh's full assurance that these highly mobile, life protecting vehicles will continue to be a top priority," said Robert G. Bohn, Oshkosh Corporation chairman and CEO.

The TAK-4 system is used in the M-ATV for superior cross-country mobility, including a 70 percent off-road profile capability and 16 inches of independent wheel travel, as per the report.

The Company has also received orders to provide more than 2,400 TAK-4 systems to upgrade the already inducted MRAP by the US Army.
